to the dogma, but what did emerson say? a speech of consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds. >> i was just thinking that. [laughter] going the other direction, as fast as possible, one of the things -- a pattern that has arisen over the years -- a lot of the leading engineers in the technology industry tend to meet with each other at an burning man, recognize kindred spirits, something like that. the most recent case would be eric schmidt meeting with the founders of google up there. that would reportedly one of the big factors. what is it that makes burning man such a haven for that kind of connection? >> several factors. you think about the culture of silicon valley. eric schmidt had been some interesting papers. he had been making the point that so much of the tech industry is project-based learning. google gives people time off to do what they want. they give them time to explore and hang out with other people, outside of the framework of this more structured enterprise. burning man, from the very beginning is project-based learning. it attracts people from every demographic that you c

purposely picked the wrong answers because he was so stubborn. at least emerson said he was. the numbers dominate everything having a terrible effect on teachers and there moral. i will go for another five minutes because i will give you one example. into of the largest cities los angeles in new york, the school department's right now not just a debating t. -- grading teachers on their test by releasing to the press the names and ratings of their teachers york grades owe through 100. 100 is the best, i think. basing this solely on exams and "the new york post" is printing them. it does not matter if the teacher has 20 children and the class or 40. it does not matter if the kids to not come into the class until the middle of the year, and if a grant. the teachers sees her name with the words in effective, mediocre, rotten apple is the new york post. worst teacher of los angeles. that is happening right now. it is nothing more than a shaming ritual. the purpose to drive the stake into the hearts of teachers and drive the best ones who refuse to teach to the test out of education altogether

. at least emerson said he was. so the numbers continue to dominate everything and it's having a terrible effect upon teachers on the morale of good teachers. we are going for five minutes, ten minutes because i want to get to meet you personally. but i will give you an example in two of the largest cities where they are the largest cities in los angeles and new york i hope i'm right the school department's right now are not just reading teachers on the basis of tests. they listen to the press to the newspapers and the ratings of the teachers rated from zero to 10100 is the best fighting -- the best i think. based on the exams and the l.a. times and "the new york post" or printing them. the teacher has 20 children in a class of 40 to read it doesn't matter a quarter of the kids didn't even come to the class in the middle of the years. the teacher sees her name with the words and effective mediocre, rotten apple, that's "the new york post," that's happening right now. it's nothing more than a shaming ritual, but it's the purpose to drive the stake into the hearts of teachers and drive the

of m.a.s.h. he reminds me a lot more of charles emerson winchester trying to be cool with hawkeye and b.j. in the still. i think we have audio from mitt from yesterday. >> romney: it is not so much winning and losing or even the people themselves, the president and myself. it is about something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. >> john: we know his pathway would choose the paul ryan budget which cuts taxes for millionaires and tries to balance the budget by cutting taxes 20% across the board. when you think about the wealthy, they've had it tough for a long time. it has been pretty tough to be a millionaire since 2001. the rich have been doing very poorly. what they need is a 20% across the board tax cut. and let's have less revenue and fix the deficit using hogwarts magic which is pretty much the paul ryan idea. that's what the widow's peak is about. i think it is part of his -- >> part of his dark hearts. >> john:

of ralph waldo emerson, the only way to have a friend is to be one. that is very important in life. third, i told my kids, never do anything in life that you would be embarrassed about that appeared on the front of "the new york times." finally, when you are the chief financial security officer, share with others less fortunate than yourself. in the biblical sense, we are at a moral obligation to help others in need. i have read a lot of words of other people that struck me in a manner that impressed me better than words that i could make up. i use the words of others. i don't know any of these people, by the way. i knew henry ford, but not any of the others. the first test of a gentleman is to respect those that cannot be of any possible value to him. i have seen people over the years -- those who treat those in a superior position to them very nicely better and nasty to people that are no value to them. i detest that kind of behavior. my view, respect people no matter what they can do for you. whether they are above human life or below you. people deserve respect and dignity. they will

accept to some degree. >> david farr, the ceo of emerson electric had two plants in states that were not good for busine business, because of what happened in south carolina with boeing, now catch this, had he moved the plants to right-to-work states, he'd have been sued. what did he do with those plants? he sent them overseas, 900 jobs. believe it or not, if we get rational about -- look, with he need regulation. romney said we need regulation. it's important. it is, because if you're going to run a bank, there's got to be some level of accountability to make sure that if i put $100 in the bank as a deposit, i can feel good it's going to be safe. so there's no issue there. but some of the regulations that are -- nlrb it's a joke. so you got that, so it's a two-pronged effort. you get that, because bernie and i both feel strongly. by the way my partner, bernie marcus, let me tell you about an american, open heart surgery five weeks ago. >> i didn't know that. >> here he is now around out working on making certain that we have an environment where we can create more -- bernie hasn't g

to the manufacturing side, generation side, companies like general election, emerson electric, which might get a short bump up in demand. on the other side, the speculation in the short term, do energy prices spike. we don't though yet. it's all over the place. so maybe over the couple week, there will be some volatility, but long term, they all work themselves out. >> some of the companies will have exposure and get to raise their premiums after a situation like this. >> so you get the complete offset there because if they've already allocated reserve for it, then the stocks will discount it pretty well, but on the other side, when people come up for reinsurance again especially along the coast, prices will be much more firmer i think companies look at that discounted as well, so sfok appli stock prices will be higher than expected. >> we were looking at whether or not the stock exchange can open tomorrow. i think the plan is to do that, but they'll be testing the arca system in case it can't get the trading floor open. is that a situation as an investor that you worry about are on you figure this is

. in the words of ralph waldo emerson, the only way to have a friend is to be one. and i think that's very important in life. third, i told my kids never do anything in life that if what you did appeared on the front page of "the wall street journal" or "the new york times" that you would be 'em embarrassed. live your life as an open book, and that's the best way to conduct yourself. and finally, which is going to seem very remote to the vast majority of the audience because it's far down the road, when you've achieved financial security and success, share with others less fortunate than yourself. in a biblical sense, we are our brother's keeper, and ily think we have -- i think we have a moral obligation to help others in need. over the years i've read a lot of words of other people that are struck me in a manner that impressed me better than words that i could make up. so i've used the words of others. so william -- i don't know any of these people, by the way, i knew henry ford, i knew who he was, but i don't know the other people. the first respect of a gentleman is those who could be

is a moderate republican named joann emerson and misery. and she voted against a couple of things that, you know, were not -- or firing behavior was not deemed sufficiently right wing. but some things saying hey, here is what the primary. as of that sort of behavior strikes fear into the arts of a lot of legislators. >> and if governor robin is a response to that from the tea party will be, we still do so. >> yes. and that is where the moderates are already. >> a level of gridlock. what do you see coming down the line considering the judicial point of crisis to back. >> a lot of unfilled vacancies at how this new congress with the current congress will react. >> that is a net. my book is about the house. i think that the problem is this is a different issue that has to do with the ability of a particular senator to block a particular federal. two to the rules and traditions of the senate. the moves to reform that. but the party in power tends to go against those movements, so i don't see there being any change in the behavior a chance in. >> the reality is we may have a set to the same situation
